    Alison Willetts is unlucky to be alive. She has survived a stroke, deliberately induced by a skilful manipulation of pressure points on the head and neck. She can see, hear and feel and is aware of everything going on around her, but is completely unable to move or communicate. Her condition is called Locked-In Syndrome.

    Glenn says: "Simon Prebble, the master narrator"

    What disappointed you about Sleepyhead?

    I Could not understand the accented pronunciations of the narrator. The story line was promising, but I gave up. I speak three languages and usually have no problems with accents...I suggest listeners take a test listen before committing to purchase.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration


    Any additional comments?

    Is this book available with a different narrator? If so I'd like to give it a listen. I hate to admit defeat.

    The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner. Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.

    Irene L. Culkeen says: "What a great find"
    "Highly recommended! Great Author!"

    Thought-provoking, detailed, addictive


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Profiler's Daughter?

    When a character reveals secrets about the main characters past.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended for intellectuals who enjoy the depth of David Baldacci's novels. I've found a new author to follow, and I'm looking forward to listening to the next installment of this series and any thing else P.M. Steffen writes!
